    do you know which sound card it has installed in it.I am not an expert but i usually would first see which is the hardware and then start looking for its driver.

    Re: No Sound

    First check: has the sound been muted? This is slightly less trivial than it may seem. Using pulseaudio and/or alsa? To be sure try them both, that once was a nasty problem on my laptop. Terminal commands
    Code:
    alsamixer
    pavucontrol
    In alsamixer you can use the arrow keys and press m to (un)mute. There must be a GUI way too, but I don't know how.

    If it's driver related, you can find the audio chipset using
    Code:
    lspci | grep Audio
